Bayfield's Lakeside Pavilion hosts WPR "Garden Talk"
Bayfield in Bloom Traditionally opens on the middle weekend in May with a special event at the Lakeside Pavilion featuring Wisconsin Public Radio's Garden Talk show with Larry Meiller.

The Bayfield spring flowering and garden festival traditionally debuts by hosting the Wisconsin Public Radio's "Garden Talk" with Larry Meiller, held live at Bayfield's Lakeside Pavilion (In 2023, it will be June 2nd). Accompanying the show in the pavilion are exhibits on landscaping, gardening, and natural resources. Several area orchards also feature plant sales during this opening weekend of Bayfield in Bloom.
For 2023, Bayfield in Bloom runs from June 2 through June 11, 2023.
Larry Meiller and his guests field questions from Radio listeners and the Bayfield audience.
The "Gardening Expo" also features gardening and horticultural exhibits, plus presentations by gardening experts before and after the "Garden Talk" show.

Almost 20 gardens were expected to participate in the June 10th for the 2023 Annual Bayfield Garden Tour. It is a self-guided walking tour with homeowners on hand to answer questions. The annual festival ends with the traditional Blessing of the Fleet celebration in the first or second week of June (in 2023, it is June 4th).
We caught some nice weather during one Memorial Day weekend in Bayfield with a number of trees and flowers still in bloom. The Bayfield in Bloom Festival normally runs from mid-May to mid-June.
Here's a few photos from our walking around town looking at various gardens and flowering trees and shrubs.

Behind this apple tree is an old apple cellar used by one of the early apple orchards to store their crop after picking. It is near the Iron Bridge Hiking Trail and creek.
Sunday evening we dined at Maggie's, a popular bar-restaurant in Bayfield. An eclectic atmosphere filled with fun stuff and highlighted by flamingos everywhere you looked.
Maggie's was recommended to us by friends who enjoyed dining there the previous year. Our Review.
